|Time [tmth013] - Jon 7|
After an extended break in recording, label head Jon 7 presents his first full release for Timetheory, an expansive, double-CD contribution to the "Time" series. Each track on "Time" was inspired by a time zone on the North American continent, and the mood of each piece tries in some way to capture some quality, real or imagined, of the geographical areas in each zone. An overall calm and tranquil feeling runs through this release, designed to be just as useful for relaxing the mind as for watch...

|Theory [tmth005] - Simple Painter|
The second Timetheory series of recordings, "Theory", begins with this release by the humble and anonymous Simple Painter, who besides being a representative of the Simple Painting Company, is a firm believer in the notion that things should never be too complicated. With sounds rescued and recycled from the hard drives of others, and through use of simple painting techniques, Simple Painter has created these 5 tracks, each one named after an intriguing but nonexistent theory...

|Theory [tmth007] - Mystified|
The second installment of our "Theory" series comes from Mystified, who of course, needs no introduction. This single-track midform, "Accelerated Decrepitude" is a warped, chimey drone that slowly loses its shine over the course of its twenty minute duration. It has been pleasantly joked that those who enjoy footage of metal rusting or corroding in fast motion will especially like this release. As the sound of Mystified continues to evolve and develop, we at Timetheory are proud to assist in the...

|M1409 Captured Borbs and Intercepted Transmissions from Possible Futures [tmth009] - Restive|
We were fortunate enough to stumble across the music of Restive in the Open Source Audio section of the archive, and immediately became fascinated with the sounds and approach used by the artist. After some contact on Myspace, we were pleased to find the music of Restive amenable to being rereleased on Timetheory, and of his many sonic space journals, #14 was selected to be presented here. Little can be said about the music on "Captured Borbs..." that is not made amply clear by the evocative tit...

|Time [tmth003] - Mystified|
Timetheory Recordings is pleased to present the label debut of Mystified, who previously worked with Jon7.net Microlabel, providing 3 excellent releases. Now Mystified has created this new release, his first for Timetheory as well as the first installment of the "Time" series of recordings this label has embarked upon. Mystified's "Time", consisting of a single medium-length track, entitled "Chronos" begins the series well, first incorporating realistic grandfather clock sounds, depicting the co...

|Pigment [tmth015] - Masaya Sasaki|
Masaya Sasaki is known from the release "Picnic Plan" on the fine netlabel -N, and when we discovered his music on Myspace, we were instantly transfixed. We've always found the Japanese take on electronic music fascinating, so it was suggested that Masaya Sasaki consider doing a release for Timetheory. There was an initial language barrier, but eventually the message went through; "Send whatever you think sounds best", and "Pigment" was what came back to us...

|Disambiguation [tmth004] - Rose Red/Upheaval|
Rose Red and Upheaval, the husband and wife duo that comprise Turmoil, as well as running the Amduscias Records netlabel, make their Timetheory debut with this split release, "Disambiguation". Never ones to shy away from dark and disturbing themes, they have provided 3 tracks each that reflect their respective influences and life experiences. Rose Red's tracks "Sinking" (featured on the "We Are Timetheory" artist compilation), "Shock Therapy" and "Neurotic Inner Self" use gentler dark ambient so...

|Light [tmth002] - Impset|
Impset (aka Christophe Cabanie) was the creative force behind "Tinram LR" an ambient IDM release on Jon7.net Microlabel in 2007. He returned later with this set of 4 tracks that continue the sonic themes explored in that album. The feel is still ambient, but much darker and moodier than "Tinram LR", but still maintain the dubbed-and-delayed qualities that have made his tracks so enjoyable to listen to...

|A Journey Through Configurational Space [tmth016] - Somasen|
Somasen is the side project of Amos Gaynes, a member of VFW (Veterans of Future Wars) whose "Hyperdimensional Digital Disaster Area" was remixed BY JOn 7 a few releases ago. These two compositions were improvised in real time using his favorite recording and production environment, Audiomulch. The title track is an extended trip into a sort of industrial style of trance, and slowly grows and develops into a dense wall of beats and textures...

|We Are Timetheory [tmth001] - V/A|
It's 2008, and the brainchild of Jon7.net Microlabel head honcho Jon 7 has come to life in the form of a new netlabel, Timetheory Recordings. This introductory compilation showcases artists and tracks that will come to define the Timetheory sound and aesthetic. Artists who had come to be a major part of the Jon7.net sound art family comprise much of the current roster, and along the way new artists have been discovered and have chosen to be part of the Timetheory posse...
